Creating a Contemporary Dining Room
While there are plenty of ideas for contemporary bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms, there seem to be far fewer options for a contemporary dining room. Traditionally, dining rooms have been more formal, making it difficult to transform into a modern space. However, with the use of contemporary dining room furniture, it can be done. Here are some tips.
Even with the most trendy contemporary furniture, your dining room won’t look quite right unless you are sure to start off with a modern base. This includes a neutral palate, keeping the walls and even floor subtle colors. When in doubt, opt for white, cream or grey shades.
You won’t need to invest in traditional, old fashioned items like hutches and servers, but be sure to find a sleek, modern table and chairs, both of which should be free of excess embellishments.
Consider adding in a funky or modern light fixture to set off your contemporary dining room, or add in some art. Include one or two bright pops of color in the form of cushions, art or carpet.
By including contemporary furniture and accents, you will have a trendy and contemporary dining room in your own home!
